What is The Gazette Gives Back?
The Gazette Gives Back is an annual program that provides our subscribers the opportunity to support area non-profits in a meaningful way, at no cost to the subscriber. By November 14th, all subscribers will receive a postcard from us detailing how they can designate their in-kind funds to any one of the participating non-profit organizations. Subscribers will be prompted to go online and elect the non-profit of their choosing. A mail option will be printed in The Gazette on Sundays in November and December for subscribers who do not have internet access. The non-profits will then be granted FREE advertising space in The Gazette throughout the next year, based on the total amount readers have designated to them.
Who will receive the in-kind donation postcard?
All active subscribers will receive the postcard. Those with 5, 6 and 7 day service will receive $50 to designate, weekend and Sunday only will receive $25.
When will I receive my in-kind donation postcard?
Postcards will be mailed the week of November 7th, 2016 and should arrive in homes by November 14th, 2016.
How do I give my in-kind dollars to one of the participating non-profits?
This process is called 'voting.' Clicking on the 'vote for this non-profit' button underneath your desired non-profit's logo will allocate your in-kind funds to that non-profit.
Can I split my in-kind donation amount between two non-profits?
No, you can only elect one non-profit to receive your entire in-kind donation amount.
Can I change my vote?
Once your vote has been cast you cannot change your vote.
How often can I vote?
The voting portion of The Gazette Gives Back initiative will take place once a year, and all active subscribers will have the opportunity to vote once during that period, each year.
I am not a subscriber, can I take part?
To participate you must be an active Gazette subscriber.
As a reader what can I expect?
Readers will receive their letters in the mail by November 14th, 2016.
Once you have the letter you will go to www.TheGazette.com/GivesBack to designate those funds to your choice of the participating non-profit organizations.
You can check back to this site regularly to reference the leader board to see how your elected non-profit is doing.
I'm a subscriber but did not receive my letter. What should I do?
Please contact customer service to confirm your funds were not already redeemed. They can take the name of the non-profit you would like your funds designated to.
